Eduardo Ferreyros, Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, detailed information about
the Dakar route, which will start from Lima, and the awareness campaign that has
 been worked on for the race.

* He also detailed the awareness campaign for the public to enjoy the Dakar without
harming the cultural and ecological heritage of the Andean country.

Lima, December 4, 2017.- The Minister of Foreign Commerce and Tourism, Eduardo Ferreyros,
officially presented the Peruvian participants who will run in the 2018 Dakar Rally,
which will celebrate its 40th edition and will start from Lima on January 6. Peru
will be in eyes of more than 190 million viewers from around the world.
The event, held in the Hall of Mirrors of the Municipality of Lima, had the presence
of the Mayor of Lima, Luis Castañeda Lossio and representatives of the Ministry 
of Culture, Ministry of Environment, Peruvian Institute of Sport (IPD) and the Ministry
of the Interior.

"The Dakar Rally returns to Peru after five years to delight motorsport fans. This
race is a great platform for the image of Peru to be promoted in the world and to
demonstrate that we can organize large-scale sporting events. The dunes of the coast,
the valleys of the mountains and the high plateau of Puno will shine", said Minister
The 21 Peruvian drivers and co-drivers, who will be in the race in 19 vehicles, 
will try to leave the name of Peru at the top. The athletes will participate in 
four categories: motorcycles, quads, cars and UTVs. The number increased compared
to the 2017 edition and one of the reasons is that the race will take place in Peru.
The most important racers of Peru in the rally are Nicolás Fuchs, who finished 12
in 2017, and Alexis Hernández, who finished in 8th place in 2016. Both riders were
in the Cross-Country World Championship preparing for this event. On the other hand,
Fernando Ferrand, father and son, and Carlo Vellutino will run for the ninth consecutive
Etienne Lavigne and Marc Coma, directors of the Amaury Sports Organization (ASO),
which organizes this competition, detailed the route and the stages where the race
will take place: Lima, Pisco, San Juan de Marcona, Arequipa and Puno. There will
 be six stages of great physical and mental demand for the participants due to the
rugged geography of the country.

The organization of the 2018 Dakar Rally created a multisectoral commission led 
by the Ministry of Foreign Commerce and Tourism (MINCETUR) and where the ministries
of Culture, Environment, Education, Interior and Defense participated in order to
draw a route that protects the exclusion zones so that the cultural and ecological
heritage are respected.
In addition, the commission carried out an awareness campaign in which the public
is asked to follow the competition in the spectator zones, to collect the waste 
and throw it away, and to respect the signage around the route. Safety is guaranteed
but it depends on each of the race attendants.
"We are the Dakar. Respect the heritage and live it responsibly", is the slogan 
of the multisectorial campaign, which was worked especially with the Ministries 
of Culture, Environment and the Interior.
